The Monday IT Club

Ref: C2224987

A progression course to solve the jargon and conundrums we all face when trying to find our way around a computer. Learn everything from switching on to all you need to know about buying and selling online!

Course aim

To extend learning and skills gained in the previous Monday IT Club course and continue building confidence both individually and as a group. Social media skills will be built upon plus word processing, file management, and buying/selling online.

Do I need any particular skills or experience?

  • This course is suitable for beginners and improvers

By the end of the course I should be able to:

  • Buying & Selling online - take part in searching for items on Gumtree and Ebay; register a user and learn how to "watch" items in your personal login area.
  • Knowing your computer - learn to identify component parts of your PC or Laptop, and be able to understand their uses.
  • File Management - create and maintain a rudimentary filing structure to save and manage your personal files.
  • Word Processing - create a Christmas Card using Microsoft Word, add text and graphics/clipart.
  • Email - learn how to attach a document and picture to an email including the Christmas Card created in previous week.

How will I be taught?

  • The WEA tutor will use a range of different teaching and learning methods and encourage you and the group to be actively involved in your learning

What kind of feedback can I expect?

  • A range of informal activities will be used by the tutor to see what you are learning which may include quizzes, question and answer, small projects and discussion
  • You will be encouraged to share your work with the group and discuss your learning
  • A file of work will be kept which will help to record your progress

What else do I need to know?

  • Some handouts will be given but a notebook and pen would be useful.

Pre-course work, reading and information sources

  • No pre reading is required but research on the subject on the internet or in the library may be helpful

What can I do next?
